UMass Mind and the Zentangle Foundation have partnered to see if using the Zentangle Method as an expressive form of therapy would allow individuals that struggle with traditional talk-based therapies another potential option for expressing themselves. Zentangle could be another resource that individuals have to help them get in touch with their emotions and feelings and relieve stress. Participation in this study was offered to individuals with early psychosis and the study took place in the first quarter of 2021.
Results of the study are expected in the Fall of 2021.
When Rick and Maria first began teaching the Zentangle Method, they had no inklings of the "side effects" practicing the Zentangle Method would have. It was from the people that called and sent emails that they began to realize the profound effects the method was having. There have been some formal studies conducted regarding the benefits of the Zentangle Method prior to the founding of the Zentangle Foundation, links can be found by clicking below.
